Catherine sits down for a chat with her sisters, and tells them how giddy she is around him. They want to know if she'd say yes if he proposed to her. "If he proposed at the end, I would say, 'Yeah, I wanna try this out,'" says Catherine, which I hate to tell her doesn't sound like the foundation for a loving marriage but a discussion you might have about subscribing to Netflix. And her sisters are skeptical because -- as ALWAYS turns out to be the case -- rather than actually signing up for love and marriage in general and a specific Bachelor in particular -- she apparently signed up because she thought it would be fun. And now Catherine is pissed that she has to defend her non-existent only-on-television relationship to her levelheaded sisters. And also I love how The Bachelor has been so spectacularly unsuccessful in producing marriages that the sisters think it's crazy that Catherine went on the show and now is almost ready to marry someone.
Sean then gets to chat with them, and he asks if Catherine is ready to settle down, and they don't say "no" but they mean "no." And Sean seems very curious to hear about how messy she is. That would be a concern, since he's probably expecting that a wife comes with maid service. By the time they start talking about handling Catherine's moods, it starts to feel like they're actively trying to sabotage the relationship (but since it really would be in Catherine's best interests to not date him anymore, I'm good with that).
It's time to talk to Catherine's mom, and she is refreshingly pragmatic about this, given that she knows he's still dating three other women. "Catherine's family is very skeptical," he tells us. Basically, he sounds pissed that they didn't gush all over the guy who is auditioning three other women other than Catherine.
Time to meet Lindsay's family, in Fort Leonard Wood. Lindsay's an army brat. Sean says Lindsay has everything he's looking for in a wife, but doesn't say what that is. Apparently a shot of Lindsay looking pretty and not saying anything tells us everything we need to know about what Sean wants in a woman.
They go walking around the town, Sean telling us that Lindsay brings out the kid in him. Just like Catherine does! "She has the biggest heart, she's so loving, so caring." Also, she's ready to get married and ready to start a family. You can't tell me he doesn't have the remaining women ranked on how many babies he thinks their hips can handle.
